Higher Education

Meeting the climate challenge through exemplary building performance.

With university funding down and enrollment high, sustainable solutions to reduce campus operational expenses are needed now more than ever. Universities are leading by example by developing climate action plans and incorporating sustainability within the built infrastructure as well as in programs, policies and curricula. The best way to embed sustainability into higher education is through design and operations. We create educational environments that are resilient, responsive, and aligned to the values of current and prospective students and faculty. Our highly credentialed team engages campus colleges and departments, students, and faculty to produce energy and economic savings that deliver on the commitments in their climate action plans.
